What is Daughters of the King at All Saints’?

The Order of Daughters of the King (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service, and Evangelism. An Order is a community under religious rule that requires its members to take a lifelong vow to follow the Rule of Prayer and Rule of Service.

Women of the Order are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with the Episcopal Church, or churches in the Historic Episcopate.  The national DOK membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic churches worldwide.

The Mission of the Order is to extend Christ’s Kingdom through Prayer, Service, and Evangelism. 

The Laura June King Alston Chapter of Daughters of the King at All Saints’ Church was established in 2009 with 12 charter members. The group usually meets on the first Sunday of each month, except during the summer months.  Membership is open, but a process of discernment and education is required before a Daughter takes the vow and is inducted into the Order.

A Daughter of the King wears a silver cross, usually on a chain or pinned to her clothing on the left side above the heart. The design is trademarked and is a modified Greek fleury cross inscribed in Latin, “Magnanimiter Crucem Sustine,” which means “With heart, mind, and spirit uphold and bear the cross.” Upon the death of a Daughter, the cross must be returned to the National DOK office or buried with the Daughter’s remains.

The motto is an important reminder to Daughters of the mission and focus of the Order:

For His sake

                 I am but one, but I am one.

                 I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

                 What I can do, I ought to do.

                 What I ought to do, by the grace of God, I will do.

                 Lord, what will you have me do?
